In Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora area, players were spotted playing in jerseys of Pakistan and before the match, teams sang Pakistan's national anthem.

The video that popped up on Facebook on Saturday showed two cricket teams lined up on the pitch before the start of a match. The arrests came in after the video went viral on social media. Police have registered a case under Unlawful Activities Act and have arrested four players, besides calling others for questioning.

The video which was shared on January 3 has taken the internet by storm, following which the local police started investigating the case.

The incident happened at the final of a local tournament in Arin, Bandipora, a week ago.

Pakistani anthem
A team of cricketers also wore green

In the video, the players were seen wearing the green jerseys of Pakistan's national team, the daily added.

While talking to Kashmir Reader, Senior Superintendent of Police Bandipora confirmed the incident and that an FIR has been filed.

This is not the first instance where Kashmiri cricketers have disrespected the nation by paying respects to Pakistan's national anthem.

In April 2017, a similar incident was reported from central Ganderbal district, where youths had played the Pakistani national anthem at the start of a local cricket match. Officers said they were looking for 22 others who had participated in the game, including two government officials.
